Chainsaw Carving

Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 10 am - 7 pm
Pat and Sonne operate their business, Doyle Carving Niche, from their wooded home near Floyd, Iowa. Pat began carving in the 1980's as a diversion from his career as a substance abuse counselor. Although early carvings were done by hand with knives and chisels, the chainsaw has become the favored tool for Pat, producing a steady stream of bears and eagles, dogs and pheasants, flowers and ears of corn....flora and fauna of all kinds.
